of these signatures say the same thing. they both belong to treasury secretary tim geithner, who by virtue of being treasury secretary is also the guy who gets to sign our money. when mr. geithner became treasury secretary, he changed his signature. he changed it from the rather lovely loop de loops on the left to the fifth grader's cursive timothy f. geithner you see on the right. here he is explaining why. >> i think on the dollar bill i had to write something that people could read my name. i didn't try for elegance. i just tried for elegance. >> because mrs. quigley, the first grade writing teach worry have given me an "f" on that. >> i took third grade in new delhi, india. >> whether it is foreign penmanship instruction or something weirder, tim geithner's changed signature never got nearly the attention that his successor's signature received. all of the media got fixated on a signature that is loopier than tim geithner's original signature. this is jack lew. all signs point to president obama say i knowing him to replace tim geithner. and if he is nominated and confirmed, that will mean that

of tim geithner. mr. lew is a government lifer. and john kerry well to the left of hillary clinton who was also recorded as rather hawkish as a senator. now hilda solis is resigning. not sure what that means, but as the president's moving further to the left in his second term. not a centrist. let's bring back karen finney, columnist for the hill. guy benson, and mark simone. guy, i think these appointments, all three of them, particularly, particularly hagel at defense, show a move to the left. what's your take? >> sure, i mean, of course they do, the president's a lefty, that's who he is. and now that he never has to face voters again, i think we'll see his administration drift even further to the left. i do see the lew appointment at least as an opportunity for republicans to highlight the fact that we have not had a federal budget in almost four years. and it is 100% the fault of democrats. a lot of americans don't know that. at least give guys like that a chance to really beat that drum. and one other thing, larry, i'm interested to see the labor department pick with solis on her
-866-55-press. we reported earlier this week that tim geithner was leaving. he was no longer going to be treasury secretary. barack obama yesterday it leaked out he was going to nominate jack lew to run the treasury department. he hasn't made the official announcement but it looks like jack lew is going to take that over which means we're going to get a new signature on our flat money. because you know, the treasury secretary has a signature. bill is checking to see if he has timothy geithner's autograph there on his dollar bills. >> bill: yes. >> peter: he's got a nice, neat little signature. timothy geithner. there is a whole hubbub now over jack lew's signature. are you ready america? to see that on your flat money. if you can't see it is just a squiggly line of a signature. it looks like someone has had too much to drink and tried to draw a caterpillar. >> that's something that someone could forge very easily. >> peter: it looks kind of like a war shock test. there's jack lew's signature right there. tell me what you see. i see a butterfly. that will be very interesting to see
considered failures. tim geithner's tenure has been controversial but i think broadly speaking what he did to write the financial system will be considered a tremendous achievement in the annals of economic policy-making. but again, they are in something of a rut, i think, in their economic policy-making at this point, and particularly in their approach to dealing with republicans. a lot of that, i'd say frankly the bulk of that blame falls on the house republicans and john boehner. but it's nevertheless a case that they just put somebody into the treasury department who they intend to have lead a lot of their budget battles who john boehner at this point essentially refuses to work with. during the 2011 negotiations, they said boehner and the republicans said we just don't want to deal with lew anymore. we don't feel we can get him to say yes to us. now, to some degree that might be because lew is reflecting the will of the president, but i just think there's a kind of a siege mentality a little bit at the white house that's showing up in their appointments, which is understandable, but i
